i have a question for BLTc owners that have adjustable seatposts. i have one installed on mine and SC says that they provided a cable routing on the top tube for the adjustable seatpost cable. i tried to fit in mine but it seems that the cable routing that was provided by SC was not for full housing cables. any options for those BLTc owners that uses adjustable seatpost? how did you route yours?

I cut the cable housing into sections for my KS i950 in order to use the factory cable guides.

If you got a RockShox Reverb, then you'll have to use a cable coupler.

Personally, I think the factory cable routing looks cleaner.

Reverb on mine.
I ran full length housing for the rear mech, zipp'd it to the rear brake hose, routed on the non-drive side of the head tube. The Reverb hose is coupled to the front mech housing behind the shock, thru a stick-on cable guide in the shock mount channel, and zipp'd to the rear mech cbl housing and brake hose at the head tube.

thanks for the pics! i see that you have a hose guide that's near the seat collar. where did you get that? did it come with the reverb?

nice cable routing too!
That hose guide comes /w the Reverb. If it's missing, find a Maverick UD fork hose management guide...like $5.00? I used one of them on my Nomad for the Joplin...put it on an angle and it's VARY SCHVEET! :)

I routed my cable through the upper shock mount and alongside the rear brake hose as well.

Those cable guides should have been the open face type, where you would use a wire tie.

Or, I'd even take ones w/ flat closed face so I can mount an aftermarket hose clamp...the ones that bolt into the existing housing terminations. But the super stylized terminations on an angle...can't get the bolt on straight at all!
I ordered a 90 degree Dremel attachment. They won't be an issue too much longer. Hum...better call to make sure I won't void the warranty :D

Someone named Dan picked up and responded to the drilling question:
"...yeah you can hog it out, it won't affect the frame any...those cable stops - they're just bonded on."

I guess that's a "go" for me :D

The only issue being, since the Reverb hose is cut to length, I might have to take it off by undoing the barb from the lever...
